Rightfully disconnected fear
Severed membrane surrounding bloodied tears
Incandescent lighting is a must
Slowly, painfully rolling onward towards dusk.
Sadly mistaken for someone dead
I think I feel like crawling towards that nine foot bed
For it is there that I can rest my swollen head
as I and we struggle to remember a handful of ignorant things said.
The glow of night and screaming ambulances rush on
Over four inches of snow, slush, salt and slime.
Steam sizzles over streets, sidewalks, someone else’s wet feet
Drinking coffee, pull the shades over my comfy sheets.
Hang your head out of the window and shout through the stale winter air
Consciousness return to me and this pen I shall spare.
Roller coaster over the hills of a desolate plain
Realistic, dreary yet genius you could never remain.
Why must I lie here with half-dry sweat pants?
To me this life isn’t worth breathing without another chance.
Drive my car without seeing the lines ahead
Hoping someone like you may deliver me into morning
Because smoking my lungs into oatmeal came without warning.
Painting, attempting to create your personal version of Candyland
In hopes of living the dreams of a life spent mainly on sand.
To all those that have come before me – thank you for the history.
Burn the mystery
Class isn’t worth it
The way I feel when I waste my ending time is equivalent to a dimly lit dark pit.
And a message to the many new souls about to be spouted into life:
Be happiness in sunshine, clear water, red light.
See the day as the answer to the question too many forget
Don’t give into the cycle, never roll over, not yet, never yet.
Weaving a hated miracle only because you’re told to see the light
If you tell them to not turn left
They will eventually go right.
Resist the advertisement of thousands gone wrong
Smiling as I laugh, the people will always hurry on.
A lonesome car parks speedily at the emergency room lot
Rushing to save a life that seems necessary, maybe not.
I see the masses whisper and wonder and worry
I also see the anxiety, the misfortune, unneeded scurry
Some have thought, wondered and most always will
Am I the one that finally saw it
or am I the one looking for a cheap thrill?
Order clothes, buy food, eat, sleep, drink
Be merry, get married
I plan to spend my life out of the cave that appears rather buried.
Away from the capitalist, economist, greedy FUCKS
Content with myself, born with steady luck.
